Ruggiano hopes to hit better than he did before going down. He was hitless in four of his last seven games in which he had a plate appearance.
Pacheco has been used sparingly this season, but has been serviceable. He's batting .250 with eight RBI in 80 at-bats.
Soler has been raking at all levels this season with a stat line of .396/.488/.792. He has eight home runs and 30 RBI in just 101 at-bats.
Peralta was on the DL only for one week with an illness. He has not pitched since July 12. He hopes to pick up his performance level upon his return. He has allowed five earned runs on nine hits in 6 1/3 innings pitched.
Struggling veteran starter
Bedard lost his starting spot after yielding six earned runs on eight hits in two innings on July 3. His ERA has soared from 2.63 to 4.76 since May 21. He has made a habit in recent years out of showing promise with a new team before fading.
A hand injury that knocked
The inactivity has cost Hill the momentum gained by a 10-game hitting streak in which he has 16 hits in 39 at-bats with six doubles and two home runs.
Realmuto has four hits in 20 at-bats in his big league stints this season. Marisnick spent three weeks in the minors after managing eight hits - all singles - in 47 at-bats with Miami.

A trade that would send second baseman
